Series produced by Spokane Public Radio

One poem each weekday morning.

With a wealth of poets in the region, Spokane Public Radio is excited to present Poetry Moment. This program features a week of poetry curated and read by a local or visiting poet. Some pieces will be their own and some pieces will be from poets they admire or find particularly poignant or relevant for the time of airing.
